According to The Sun, Jay-Z hired a private lounge, known as “The Vault”, for the concert. The room was decorated especially for the concert and featured one wall covered with bottles of Armand de Brignac Brut Gold Champagne. The Champagne, which costs around £300 a bottle, has featured in other expensive round in the UK, including a £120,000 night out in London and what is thought to be the UK’s biggest bar bill.
